What's New in Research on Teaching and Learning: Teaching Undergraduate Students Through Research Experiences

Often, students participating in research experiences see the learning focused on technical skills, while faculty see research as an application-based extension of the theory learned in class teaching higher-order thinking and professional "soft" skills. What skills are most important to teach in the research environment? How do I focus on teaching undergraduate students while still attaining my research goals? This talk, presented by CHBE Postdoctoral Scholar Dan Marincel, aims to answer these questions by discussing the literature on undergraduate research experiences.

Each semester, the CTE hosts at least one formal research presentation on a specific question addressed within the scholarship of teaching and learning. The "What's New in Research on Teaching and Learning" talks take place over lunch (provided by the CTE) and are open to all faculty, postdoctoral scholars, and graduate students.
